// -----
// 12.08.2005 created
// 31.08.2005 jcl object used instead of global methods and objects
// 04.09.2005 GetPropValue added.
// 15.09.2005 CloneObject added.
// 27.09.2005 nosubmit attribute without forms bug fixed.
// 29.12.2005 FindBehaviourElement added.
// 02.04.2005 term method added to release bound html objects.
// 07.05.2006 controlsPath added.
// 09.05.2006 Raise only changed values.
// 09.05.2006 Load() and RaiseAll() added to support default-values on page start.
// 03.06.2006 binding to the document enabled for FF.
// 13.08.2006 classname functions added.
// 16.09.2006 bind() function added to the Function.prototype.
//            The "on___" functions that are automatically attached to events
//            are now always executed in the context of the bound object.
// 24.11.2006 DataConnections without a name are ignored now.
// 09.01.2007 allow Array.prototype.extensions (prototype.js)
// 06.06.2007 including an Open Ajax hub specification compatible implementation
// 11.07.2007 more robust classname functions.
// 15.08.2007 afterinit method support for JavaScript Behviors. This method is called after all components
//            on a page have been initialized.
// 22.08.2007 jcl.getCookie and jcl.setCookie added.
// 15.09.2007 BuildFullEventname added.
// 07.10.2007 Firefox bugs fixed.
// 11.11.2007 isIE removed: use jcl.isIE instead.
// 20.11.2007 DataConnections a.k.a. Page Properties finally removed to favour the OpenAjax.hub
// 12.12.2007 adding EventNameSpace
// 12.01.2007 initstate method support for JavaScript Behviors.
// 02.01.2009 adding new nls support
// 05.12.2009 fixed getCookie
// 01.10.2010 IE9 compatibility avoiding browser detection.

// initialization sequence: init(), initstate(), afterinit()
